Knowing that “literacy” is the single most important indicator of a health outcome, Health Literacy Innovations (HLI), creates tools to help eliminate medical mistakes and confusion due to low health literacy. HLI's flagship product, the Health Literacy Advisor (HLA), is the nation's first interactive health literacy software tool. A simple add-in to Microsoft Word, the HLA is revolutionizing a labor intensive literacy review process with a powerful new software tool to help communicators evaluate, standardize, and produce clear health information. Unique in design, the HLA applies nine well-known readability indices and an interactive search-and-replace function that allows users to set desired reading levels, evaluate a document's readability level, track problems areas, and then replace hard-to-read terms and phrases with plain language alternatives. An HLA ReadsEasy™ stamp (and virtual cheer) appear when users meet their desired readability level. Together, these functions set the HLA software apart from other tools not designed for health literacy. For more information visit www.HealthLiteracyInnovations.com or call 301-230-4966.
